Since this is the 5th Annual MommyFest they are having a contest where you are supposed to post a picture of 5. It can be anything but I immediately thought of this picture of the playgroup friends. My daughter is in the middle. Trinity and Cooper to her right and left have been in this playgroup with Kirstyn since they were so tiny all they did was lay in the floor and gaze at each other. Mabrie to the far left joined when she was pretty little but she is a year younger than the three in the middle. Ben to the right with the serious superhero face is our newest playgroup friend.
Yes we are [friends] and I do like to pass the day with you in serious and inconsequential chatter. I wouldn't mind washing up beside you, dusting beside you, reading the back half of the paper while you read the front. We are friends and I would miss you, do miss you and think of you very often. I don't want to lose this happy space where I have found someone who is smart and easy and doesn't bother to check her diary when we arrange to meet. ~Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body, 1992
